WMATA is looking soliciting handicapped Metro riders for a committee to review the transit service's accessibility.

Metro is seeking new members for the Metro Elderly and Disabled Transportation Advisory committee -- a body that weighs in on ways to improve the transit experience for senior citizens and people with disabilities.

The 20-member panel includes six members each from Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. There are also two at-large seats.

Positions on the committee are currently open for disabled or elderly riders from the District, Alexandria, Fairfax and Arlington counties and Prince George's and Montgomery counties.

The deadline for applications is April 29.
